We are currently recruiting patients, as well as their unpaid carers and their advocates (usually referred to as ‘lay members’ at NICE) to join the committees outlined below.
You might also be interested in applying yourself or wish to consider encouraging others to apply.

We’re looking for people with an understanding of receiving care before, during and after an operation and the issues important to patients and unpaid carers.

Venous thromboembolic diseases guideline committee

Who are we looking for to fill these roles?
We would welcome an application from those who have recent experience or knowledge of these topics and are able to reflect the views, experiences and needs of the public to ensure they are included in the development of these guidelines. They need to be able to contribute effectively in a formal committee setting. Our lay members are paid a fee to attend meetings and we cover travel and other expenses.
If you consider it appropriate, please also promote these vacancies through social media (links to our tweets above) or your other communication channels (a newsletter, for example) at your disposal.
We really value the contribution that people who use health and social care services, their carers and advocates make to our guidelines, and would appreciate any help you can give in letting people know about this vacancy.
If you have any queries about these particular guidelines or any other aspect of NICE’s work, please do get in touch – I would be happy to chat further.
